I have the same errors after converting.
In the meantime I have found this ->
"low level drivers are not currently supported in Wine, (...) Wine does
not correctly supports those two so far. (...)
There are two specific low level drivers (...) These drivers (also
present in Windows) allow: (...)
- add the possibility to convert stream's format (ie ADPCM => PCM)
(this is useful if the format required by the application for playback
isn't supported by the soundcard)."
First I thought that wine does not support software ADPCM decoding and
my old Sound Blaster 16 surely has no hardware ADPCM support.
I am not very good in this field and finally I'm not sure if I
understand it well. If I were sure I would replace the sound card with
a newer one. Can you help (with understanding the above article) ?
